You're welcome.

It is interesting when information comes out that shows close relationships amongst various members of the royal family that we don't see normally.

I almost wish she'd have an evening wedding so everyone could wear tiaras...she and Beatrice are princesses and neither of them have ever worn tiaras, I don't think. What's the fun of being a royal princess if you can't wear the gems? :)

Now that would be an interesting wedding. I like that idea. So many possibilities, though churches can look so forbidding in the evening (no light coming through the stained glass windows). They would have to have tons of candles and flowers, or some sort of pervasive low lighting. TWINKLY LIGHTS!!!!

I doubt it would be an evening wedding.

British weddings traditionally are morning affairs and there is no way the Queen would want them all in tiaras especially as she has a 'rule' that only married women can wear one - that would emphasise more to Beatrice her unmarried state as she wouldn't be able to wear one.

I would expect a morning wedding with a lunch-time reception and a night-time party for the younger guests.

There probably won't be any TV coverage except the odd glimpse of them arriving and leaving - no coverage inside the Chapel or through the streets of Windsor for this couple I suspect.

Security will be so much easier than for Harry's - just close the gates of the castle and allow no one in for the day other than invited guests and maybe some press but that I suspect may be all.

I know it won't be an evening wedding, thus my statement of "I almost wish".

Due to simple fact it was a late afternoon wedding. That is why there was also no hats for the women. Day dress and hats are only appropriate for earlier day weddings. That is why on the continent we see more formal weddings with gowns and often tiaras, as they tend to be later afternoon.

Eugenie is more likely to follow the regular route: late morning ceremony, reception throne by queen, and then an evening party for friends. Not just among royals like William and Kate, it is common now a days.

So it is simply because of the time? Is there any reason that they chose late afternoon but not follow the tradition?

Yes. Traditionally an evening/late afternoon wedding would be black tie at this type of wedding. Which for women means long gowns, no hats, and men black tie. Day time events call for day/lounge suits or uniforms, and day dresses and hats for women.

Edward and Sophie seemed to want to make a point of their wedding as being different from the standard royal wedding as possible. Having a simple late afternoon ceremony and one reception, was a definite change.

While Eugenie's wedding will be smaller then even Harry's, I don't see her going this drastic. Even 'commoner' weddings like Pippa's and others in the circles Eugenie has gone to, will have had the three event form.

It must be a fairly recent "rule" then as both Princess Margaret and The Princess Royal wore tiaras as unmarried teenagers - Anne to the State Opening of Parliament. Granted, times have changed...

I expect Beatrice will be her Maid of Honor, and Jack's brother will be best man.
Little Maud Windsor is her godchild, so I imagine she will be a bridesmaid.


I didn't know that. Oh my...I can see it now....A circlet of flowers around that mass of curls framing that adorable face.

I think I just died from cuteness overload.

I hope she wears her Mother's Tiara. It truly is a beautiful piece & it has been unseen for far too long!!

I agree. Would look lovely with an up-do.

Indeed. The rule actually was very old. Even when the queen was little, when her grandparents were on the throne, a tiara would not be worn by a single woman. They were seen as a sign of being married, you'd wear it on your wedding for the first time. Traditionally you'd wear your family tiara on your wedding and then jewels from your husband after. Tiara events were far more common back then.

The rules have lightened over the decades since. When Margaret was a debutant in Paris, she wore a tiara. And as stated, Anne wore them before her marriage as well.

The fact is we have had no reason to see Beatrice or Eugenie in a tiara. They are not invited to the white tie events where tiaras are worn. Kate and Meghan didn't wear them prior to weddings because they were still commoners. We will have to see when Charlotte will wear her first.

Yes, Maude with her head of red curls would look positively adorable with a wreath of flowers. I really do hope we see her. She is a cutie.

I don’t think we’ll see the Cambridge children in the wedding party.
While we can be almost certain that Beatrice will be maid of honour, her other attendants will most like lily include Maud Windsor, a cousin or niece/nephew from her maternal family, maybe one of Princess Anne’s grandchildren, possibly one of her friends children (Branson’s probably).
If she goes for older attendants you could expect Cressida Bonas/Chelsy Davy (which could be interesting).
As for her tiara, I have almost no doubt that she will wear her mother’s tiara. Also I expect a sleek wedding dress, nothing too big.

Now that is what I call *Breath Taking* and just the right colors for autumn. Those are gorgeous and I hope Princess Eugenie goes with the autumn colors in her church and reception. I have tons of books and I bet there are autumn leaves dried in everyone, so bring autumn on and show the colors.

I always thought she would be a godmother to one of his children, but since we don't know the names....perhaps she is.

I think the Strathmore Tiara would look lovely but I can see her using something from the Queen rather than the Queen Mother.


I thought so too about the Philips girls.

Yes!!!
Something vibrant, to suit the season, not muted colors.

And with leaves and berries included with the flowers.

With the pink/orange colour of the engagement ring, the proposal made under a setting sun and the fact that the wedding will be in Autumn, I can see an amazing colour theme coming through for this wedding - various and vibrant hues of oranges, deep pinks and reds, some yellow and gold tones too.

I have to add another thing to this color scheme. Definitely going to see red. Sarah and her amazing head of hair.

Autumn though is the perfect time of the year for the vibrant colors that Mama Nature paints her world with. Cooler temperatures are setting in and with the heat of the summertime gone, things just seem to come even more alive. Those Autumn colors will go splendidly in St. George's Chapel too I think. Much better than spring pastels would really.
